Rumor: iPhone 3.0.1 Already on iPhone 3GS. 3.1 to Fix Bugs, Battery Charger Problems?

Posted by

I recently tried out a friend’s battery charger case and my iPhone 3GS began to buzz and flash between locked, wallpaper, and temperature warning screens.

Not to be all Wall Street Journal about it, but according to sources in a position to know, this is not an uncommon problem and Apple is set to address it in the next firmware update, which should be coming soon — 3.1.

3.1 you ask? It’s what we asked as well, and were told the iPhone 3GS is already running what’s considered 3.0.1 and the next update would likely be 3.1 (though 3.0.2 or an “official” cross device 3.0.1 still sounds more like as a bug fix release to us).

Consider it a rumor for now, but at the very least, if your charging case is giving you headaches, rest assured help is on the way.

(And it’s recommended you don’t use it until the problem is addressed).

iPhone killer is coming to town: Palm Pre GSM version leaked with video

Posted by

Palm Pre CDMA version is here for US users. The truth is not so many places using the CDMA standard, Pre need to provide GSM version in order to sell globally like the iPhone. A new video is leaked on the internet which shows the Palm Pre operated in Vietnam. Since the video shows it works perfectly, it would mean the GSM version is coming soon. iPhone 3GS is going to more places in July. Will Palm Pre be released at the same time? I am hoping the war begins. Palm Pre is the one that I would consider as the ultimate iPhone killer.

SMS texting and voicemail support come with latest Skype update

Skype (iTunes link) has been updated to 1.1, which brings it some new features making it more closely resemble its desktop sibling. So, what’s new? Well, there’s now support for Skype voicemail (subscription needed) and SMS text messaging.

However, SMS texting is not bidirectional. Which means that you can send SMS texts, but not receive them. And while a dialog box states that sent SMS texts will show up as sent from the sender’s Skype screen name, in my case it displayed the “999-99″ caller ID that typically accompanies calls from a Skype-based client. Perhaps that’s because I don’t have a SkypeIn number?

The 1.1 update also provides additional language support as well as more help when dialing phones.

Apple said iPhone 2G hardware can’t handle MMS, but the truth is not. There are plenty of tutorials that helps to enable iPhone 2G MMS, but it would be complicated for some users. If you have jailbroken the iPhone, you can just enable it with simple installation. Find “ActivateMMS2G” in Cydia. It’s in the iSpazio Source. If you can’t find it, install iSpazio from “Repositories”. Install “ActivateMMS2G” and restart the iPhone. Configure the MMS server settings in “Settings” > “General” > “Network” > “Cellular Data Network”. You are done.

Apple and Google Propose Standardized Encoding for… Emoji!

Posted by

Love them or hate them, miracle or menace, Emoji are standard message elements in Japan and have caught some favor among internet iPhone users (and TiPb Forum staff…)

The problem, however, is that there’s currently no standard way to encode the little mega-smileys across different carriers and platforms, leading to a lot of “translation” work in between. The solution?

engineers from Google and Apple have got together to try to propose an encoding for these emoji (they have identified 674 of them!) that can be added to the official standard ISO/IEC 10646, as can be seen in this document, Proposal for Encoding Emoji Symbols.

Maybe next Apple could work on not requiring complex, app-bound Emoji activation processes for non-Japanese iPhones? Sumo, tiny red cars, and weirdly smiling brown piles for everyone!

iPhone Guy left Apple and work for the “white spaces”

Posted by

bob-borchers

You may not remember his name, but you probably have watched his videos. His name is Bob Borchers. Borchers is the guy appeared in several iPhone 3G Guided Tour videos. He worked as senior director of iPhone worldwide product marketing, but now he left the company. He is now the general partner of venture-capital firm Opus Capital. He said he was enjoyed while working working in Apple, but want to work for the “range of white spaces in the mobile world”. It probably means he want to try different areas. Currently there are no additional information about the replacement of his position in Apple.
